Reverend William Sinkford
- Location: MA 02108
- Marching Since: October 27, 2005
I join this cyber march against global warming, and encourage other Unitarian Universalists to do so, because it is an act of love to speak out on behalf of those without voice. As people of faith, we are called to speak out for the many species that are suffering and becoming extinct. We are called to speak out for Arctic Circle villagers, where thousands of years of subsistence living is sinking with the ice which can no longer hold seals or hunters. We are called to speak for our children and grandchildren, whose very survival on this planet will be thrown into question in ways we cannot yet imagine.>
I join this cyber march against global warming, and encourage other Unitarian Universalists to do so, because it is an act of faith to speak out on behalf of our earth. For hundreds of years, our theology has been radically incarnational–we do not understand the Holy to be separate from this life, on this planet, made manifest in concrete acts of caring for one another in our mutual vulnerability. As we sing out praises for the beauty of the earth, we also sing out commitment to protect that beauty.
I join this cyber march against global warming, and encourage other Unitarian Universalists to do so, because it is an act of justice to speak out in solidarity with others who take risks for us all. We honor the wisdom of the scientific community which has pointed out to us that we’re in trouble and warned us that we must change what we are doing immediately. We honor the wisdom of those many nations which are committed to acting together to reverse the horrific trends which we see today. Because those in power too often focus on immediate profits rather than long term sustainability, we must speak with the voice of a million, demanding reverence for life.
Join us. March with us. Encourage your congregation’s members to sign on. In this marching, may we know our faith more deeply, and may our faith give us strength to continue on the long journey home that we can only make together.
